Problem P. 4676. (November 2014)

P. 4676. The density of a uniform sphere of radius \(\displaystyle R\) is \(\displaystyle \varrho_1\), except for a smaller spherical region at which the density is \(\displaystyle \varrho_2\) The distance between the centres of the two spheres is \(\displaystyle s\).

\(\displaystyle a)\) What is the acceleration due to gravity along the line which joins the centres of the spheres at a point which is at a distance of \(\displaystyle d\ge R\) from the centre of the greater sphere?

\(\displaystyle b)\) Let \(\displaystyle s=R/2\) and \(\displaystyle r=R/4\) be. In this case the acceleration due to gravity at point \(\displaystyle K\) is 10% greater then at point \(\displaystyle T\) shown in the figure. What is the ratio of \(\displaystyle \varrho_2/\varrho_1\)?
